Writer in Residence
Sally Thorne is the USA Today bestselling author of the office rom-com The Hating Game (2016) . It is her debut novel that has sold in over twenty-five countries and is being made into a major motion picture, to be directed by Peter Hutchings.
The Hating Game was named in the top 20 romance novels of 2016 by the Washington Post and was a top ten finalist in the Goodreads Choice Awards romance category. It has been cited as a book that has reinvigorated the romantic comedy genre.
Sally’s much anticipated second novel, 99 Percent Mine, was released in January 2019 by William Morrow Books. It debuted on the USA Today Bestseller list and was featured by Goodreads as one of the top 28 hit books for the first half of 2019.
Sally Thorne lives in Canberra, Australia and spends her days writing, reading, drinking cups of tea and obeying the every whim of Delia the Pug and her paint Quarter Horse, Louie. She lives with her husband in a house filled with vintage toys, too many cushions and a haunted dollhouse.
Her latest novel is Second First Impressions and was published by Hachette Australia in 2021.
